Hey, can somebody

Hey, can somebody help me with my book? It has problems. . .

I mean, I have  good story line and everything, but the problem is, i'm always making new characters and killing them. And then it gets too sad, because I just killed my fifth set of main characters. And then twenty people are heart broken and the other, what?, ten? are really, really depressed because all their freinds are dead and know they have to strive on alone. And then it makes me cry, and this is supposed to be a children's book and it turns out more like a bloody, slaughter story rated R. And the bad guys keep murdering my favorite characters and it's a mess!! So, yeah, it needs some help.

Anyone? Please?

Well I am not sure if you read Harry Potter or not but that is quiet sad in some of the books. Maybe try to lean the story another way but not so much were you completely change the book. This can be quiet hard to do. As I was reading in a book I got at the library yesterday it said that all books need a theme. I am not sure if you have one or not but if you don't try to think about what the book is going to be about.
